MARKET ST. 






FOREWORD 

By PETER B. KYNE 



In my day I have written forewords to many 
books, but this is the first time I have ever written 
a foreword to a catalog. It is a real pleasure, 
however, to write a foreword to this catalog, for 
I am familiar with this company's products, hav- 
ing used them all my life. 

As a boy eight years old I rode one of the 
earliest made saddles of D. E. Walker, who es- 
tablished this company in the city of Visalia, 
California, about sixty-five years ago. My legs 
were too short to reach the 
stirrups, even after they had 
been shortened to the limit, 
so I used to loop the rosa- 
deros instead. This was a 
good saddle for two rea- 
sons: it suited me, and also 
one Jose Maria Antonio 
Sanchez, who, in his youth, 
had been a great rider in 
our country, when rough 
riding was a daily chore and 
not an exhibition to be paid 
for. 

The design of that old 
saddle tree remains basically 
the same to this day, and I 
have used many of the mod- 
ern vintage and never with 
the slightest discomfort or 
loss of skin to man or beast. 
In 1928 I took my outfit to 

the Stampede at Calgary, 
Alberta, Canada, and was advised by a friendly 
cowboy to sit in my saddle continuously or 
some weak brother would steal it. It was in- 
teresting to have dozens of the local boys coming 
up to my hotel room, introducing themselves, 
and asking to see my saddle. And it wasn't a 
show saddle, either. Just utilitarian. In the 




end I lost that saddle. A friend at whose ranch 
I was a guest raved over its excellences for a 
week, so I finally gave it to him. He said it 
had taken me long enough to assimilate the 
hint. 

With the death of D. E. Walker, the Visalia 
Stock Saddle Company traveled right along in 
the same old path, under his nephew, Edmund 
Walker Weeks. Neither the business policy of 
the firm nor its saddles changed very much. 
They had a splendid prod- 
uct, it gave universal satis- 
faction, it was a thing of 
beauty, so why experiment 
with changes? 

For a trophy, to be con- 
tested for in roping con- 
tests at rodeos, I am hope- 
lessly addicted to giving a 
Visalia Stock Saddle, for 
out in California, cattlemen 
are suspicious of any other 
make. 

I have bought eight of 
them thus far, and I use 
two of them on my own 
ranch. 

After thirty-five years of in- 
timate acquaintance with 
Visalia saddles, I have 
never known one to gall a 
horse's back. 
But why confine my commendations to this 
company's saddles. They sell every article for 
use in connection with horses and the men and 
women who ride them, and while I continue to 
own, ride and race horses I shall always owe 
them money.

Revised Prices Applying to Catalog No. 31 

The prices quoted In our catalog No. 31 ore sevoral years old, and during (his timo the cost of most of the matorial* 
used in the manufacture of our saddles and other equipment have advanced considerably. 

This makes it impossible for us to retail these goods at the prices formerly asked, and still keep our merchandise up 
ur well-known high standard of quality, and it has become necessary for us to make advances in prices as listod 
MtJow. 

The future it very uncertain as to prices, which are SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE, and which, we 
■tope, will be downward instead of upward, and in which case we will bo the first to givo our customers the benefit of 
any fluctuation in costs, without any solicitation on their part.

QUALITY 



For 64 years the name and fame of the Visalia Saddle has been closely associated with the success 
of the Western cattleman. It is due to the efforts of D. E. Walker, the founder, and of E. W. 
Weeks, the builder of the Visalia Stock Saddle Company, that Visalia Quality Saddles stand 
supreme in public regard. Built on the foundation of "A SQUARE DEAL TO ALL," we have con- 
sistently maintained the ideal of a good article at as low a price as is consistent with honest material

class by themselves. The art of flower stamping was brought to California at the time of Mexican 
occupation and was here developed and perfected. Since that time California saddles have become 
renowned for their superiority of their flower work which still holds good and this wonderful art 
finds its highest expression in this fine work we show here.

As to quality — there is no question — our best materials and efforts go into these saddles 
Not "ready-made" in the usual sense of the term, which implies a factory-made, piece-work 
job. Saddles of this type being made to sell at a price and the quality pared down to meet that 
price. "READY TO WEAR" means strictly high-grade saddles, built of our very best material, 
by our best saddlers with all the pains-taking care and under the strictest personal supervision, 
that have made the reputation of our saddles what it is. For many years, it has been our practice 
to build our saddles on the custom plan, but having had so very many urgent calls for saddles 
for quick shipment we are now taking care of this demand with our READY TO WEAR line, 
carried in stock in 14, 14Y 2 , and 15 inch trees.

cantle, 3-B slick fork. This is one of our old-time 
favorites which still holds its own with any of them. 

NOTE! 

Our improved flat "Norust" bronze rigging 
rings are so constructed that they lay flat in 
the riggings. No hump in the center or wear 
on the edges of leather. They also lay flat 
on the skirts and if you have ring troubles 
we reconmmend these. 



It may be that none of the trees we show exactly suit yon— in this case, jnst select the horn ont of one 

tree, the tork of another, and the caiitle of another, and make anv change in the leathers and stamping 

that you may prefer, and we will make your rig just that way— and THERE IS NO EXTRA CHARGE 

FOR IT. Sixty-four years of experience are at your service.

Eight "Walker Association" saddles made for two big 
California Rodeos: Salinas and LIvermore. 

These two rodeos are run by experienced cattlemen, 
who know a good saddle when they see it. With their 
knowledge of the reputation of the Walker saddle, for 
long and hard service, it is very natural that they should 
select the best there is for their rodeos, and the old- 
established and time-tested Walker was their choice, 
Read what they say about them. 



Vlsalia Stock Saddle Company, 

2117 Market Street. 

San Francisco. California. 



It is with great pleasure that we express to you our appreciation 
of the manner in which your firm has filled the order for the eight 
contest saddles for our show. 

These saddles conform in every particular to the rules aB laid 
down by the Rodeo Association of America and are entirely satisfac- 
tory to the contestants. We wish to compliment you on their con- 
struction and material, and we want to particularly recommend the 
Bank cinches, for they are especially g-ood from the humane stand- 
point and for bucking-horse contest, and far superior to the ordinary 
flank rig - . 

Trusting- we have the pleasure of seeing- you at our next show, 
with best wishes, we remain. 

LIVERMORE STOCKMEN'S RODEO. 

Tour very truly.

VISALIA STOCK SADDLE CO. 
Gentlemen : 

My Visalia trick saddle is a dandy. It has a good high horn, the right height 
cande, good heavy rigging and everything is put together right. If anyone is figur- 
ing on buying a new trick riding saddle, I would certainly suggest they buy a 
Visalia. It can't be beaten for the money or for twice the price. If I ever need 
another one I will get it from Visalia. 

Yours truly,

WALKEROPERS 

These saddles, designed primarily for heavy roping, 
are the result of many years' experience in building 
this type of trees and saddles. For all these years we 
have enjoyed the benefits of having our own tree shop, 
where we could carry on experiments, aided by sugges- 
tions from practical, experienced cowmen, who know the 
requirements for a real cowman's saddle. Thus we have 
been able to bring our trees and saddles up to the high 
standard they have attaind. 

The horns are just the right height and pitch for rop- 
ing, with large heads, rawhide bound to withstand the 
hard usage they receive in this work. 

The cantles are low, of various heights to suit every 
taste, and bindings are buck sewed by hand, greatly out- 
wearing the thread sewed cantles. 

The forks are of various widths and shapes, but all set 
low, fitting snugly down into the withers, where the tree 
gets its hold on the horse's back, yet so constructed that 
they clear the top of the withers, being free from the 
common failing of that type of tree, many of which will 
hurt a high-withered horse at that point. 

Every point in these trees and saddles has been care- 
fully worked out, with the result that for practical use- 
fulness and service and maximum wearing qualities the 
"WALKEROPER" line stands preeminent. 

Most of this line are shown with the "HALF DOU- 
BLE NO TWIST" stirrup leathers which we highly rec- 
ommend for comfort and long service. 

When moulded as shown, there is no hump at the 
ankle to cause discomfort, no twist or friction to wear 
out the stirrup leathers — they lay smooth to the leg and 
are the slickest thing out in the way of stirrup leathers. 

Just say in your order — "Half double, no twist", and 
we will do the rest. Contrary to the prevailing custom 
we make no extra charge for double leathers if you want 
them. Fitted with centerfire, or three-quarter ring rig- 
ging. All leather flat plate center-fire, five-eighths or 
three-quarter rig, #3.50 extra. Initials or brand on back 
cande no extra charge. 



There's a vast difference between factory-made and custom-made work, factory-made goods are turned out almost entirely by 
piece work, rushed through to "make time," the sole object seemingly to be to see how cheaply they can be produced. Custom 
work is generally made by day work, and no incentive exists to crowd tht work through at a speed which is detrimental to 
the quality of the goods, and the natural result is a more substantial ant! thoroughly made article than is usually produced 

by the piece-work method. 

Our goods are all HAND CUSTOM MADE by day work, the idea being "not how cheap, but how good." This, and the use 

of the finest and moBt expensive materials, accounts for the extreme durability for which they are noted. 

Every week, we repair Walker Saddles from 10 to 25 years old and still doing good service

OIK UIPROTED ALL LEATHER. 
FLAT PLATE CINCH RIGGING 





THREE-QUARTER RIG (See Cut No. 11) 
Our Improved Flat Rigging Rings 

Notice how far forward the stirrup leathers 
swing, to the full extent of the groove in the 
tree, and owing to the extra length of the 
ring, there is also plenty of backward Bwing, 
without binding: the stirrup leathers. 

Flank rings $2.50 per pair extra, put in. 

Most riders know that a heavy piece of 
leather fitted iDto a round ring will, when 
the Btraln is put on it. adjust itself to the 
curve of the ring. This throws nearly all 
of the strain on the edges of the leather, 
causing it to wear through in time, partic- 
ularly if the ring Is of the tnin, flat type. 
This also causes the leather to hump up in 
the center, making a lump there that many 
times makes a ring sore, and also is uncom- 
fortable for the rider. 

You will readily see that the parts of these 
Improved rings where the leather lays are 
straight, not curved, so that the strain Is put 
evenly the whole width of the strap. This 
eliminates the wear and strain on the edges 
of the straps, adding to the life of the 
riggings, and also cutting out the lump, as 
these rings make the least bulk of any rings 
In the market. They are made of the tough- 
est and strongest no rust metal known, and 
are the ideal rings for your saddle. 



This is the rigging you need for your saddle and you cannot realize 
the pleasure and comfort derived from riding in a saddle with the stirrup 
leathers swinging free, without interference from the cinch rigging or 
rings, until you try one. It relieves your horse from the discomfort of 
working under a rig that annoys or hurts him, and both horse and rider 
will do their work with less fatigue than with any other rigging. 

Cut from the heaviest prime leather, well stretched and fitted, re- 
inforced by our improved thin, flat, non-corrosive plates, which leaves 
the rigging flexible so that it will adjust itself to the shape of the horse. 

The openings for the latigoes are strengthened by an extra clip cover- 
ing the edge of the leather and plate, affording a smooth running edge 
for the latigo slightly curved just enough to allow for the adjustment of 
the saddle on the horse so the latigoes will pu)i true. This opening is 
below the edge of the skirts, so that the latigoes lay off the skirt on the 
blanket, taking the pressure off the skirts. 

Another valuable feature is that the lower stirrup leathers com© 
out from under the tree, and pass OVER the cinch rigging, instead of 
under it as with the ring rigging, so there is no pressure whatever on 
them from the rigging, and leaving them free to Bwing the whole length 
of the space between the tree and the rigging, aB the cut shows. Made 
center fire, % or % rig. $3.50 extra. 

OUR NEW "WALKEROPER" RIGGING 



Here is a cinch rig 
that works on them 
all — the last word in 
2inch riggings. 

This new device consists 
of a rustless steel plate se- 
curely attached to the, 
leather cinch rigging. It is 
so constructed that the' 
wraps of the latigoes lay 
in a recess or groove on 
the under side, flush with 
the metal with no lump to 
cause the trouble some- 
times made by the ordin- 
ary rigging rings. 



THE POPULAR % DOUBLE BIG 

All the metal is Rustless Steel. This rigging, as shown, with cinch and 
two latigoes. costs $6.00 more than the regular ring riggings. (See Cut No. 1, 
page 40.) 

Leather flank cinch complete — $2.50 extra. 

Also made in % and %, without flank rings. $3.50 extra on any ring- 
rigged saddle.

DIRECTIONS FOR ORDERING SADDLES. (SEND FOR ORDER BLANKS.) 

PLEASE DO NOT CUT THIS CATALOG — SEND THE NUMBERS ONLY OF THE ARTICLES. 

As all these details are important, to enable us to understand your order as you intend it, and to build 
the work to conform to your ideas, we ask you to read these pages carefully. For rush orders, use the 50 
word night telegram. 

"We ship saddles and heavy packages by express or parcel post, as desired, and we can now send shipments up to $200.00 
value and 70 pounds weight to any pOBt office. The rates are about equal on long hauls, but in favor of the parcel post for 
short distances and on small packages. We use the lower rates in all cases. Goods sent C. O. D. to money order offices only 
to other post offices the value of goods and postage must accompany order. 

WE REQUIRE A DEPOSIT OF 25 PER CENT ON ALL ORDERS. Use U. S. or express money orders payable to Visalia 
Stock Saddle Co., San Francisco (not Visaha) . Personal cheeks accepted lor collection. 

1 — NUMBER OF SADDLE. Write plainly, so there will be no mistake. 

2 — TREE. Be SURE to state length, also state style wanted. If not 
specified, we send style shown in cut of saddle. If you prefer something dif- 
ferent, do not fail to state so. See page 45 for Tree Measurements 

3 — RIDER. Give your height and weight, and size shoe worn. This en- 
ables us to get the stirrup leathers and rosaderos the right length, and send 
the right size stirrup. 

IF SADDLE IS WANTED DIFFERENT FROM CUT, see items following. 

When describing parts of a saddle or tree, do not say, "small or large," 
as that is too indefinite, but specify "long or short," "narrow or wide," "high 
or low." This refers particularly to horns, cantles, bastos, rosaderos, etc., and 
if measurement in inches can be sent, or a paper pattern, so much the better. 

BASTOS OR SKIRTS If saddles shown with round skirts are wanted with eq.uare skirts, 
add $4.00 for plain skirts, $5.00 for basket or checker Btamp, and $6.00 for regular grade 
of flower stamp, as in saddle No. 93. 

5 — CANTLE — Most of our saddles are shown with the "bound" cantle, with a heavy leather or rawhide 
binding. We also make the FULL ROLL cantle, with 1%-inch projection, and the HALF ROLL, made the 
same as the full roll, but only %-ineh projection; $1.00 extra charge for either. 

6 — HORN. We usually send our saddles out with the COVERED horn, but if preferred, we send them 
HALF COVERED, or with both neck and head BARE, In which cases we double rawhide the unleathered 
parts, giving double the wear in roping. 

RIGGING AND CINCHES. We make three styles of SINGLE RIGS. (See pages 40 and 41) . 

The regular CENTER FIRE, as most of the saddles are shown, with 6-inch, **o. 16 cinch. 

The % RIG, as on saddle 151, with 5-inch No. 16 cinch. 

The SPANISH RIG, as on saddle 555, with 4-inch No. 16 cinch. 

Prices all the same. Should you prefer other cinches, see page 41, and state which you prefer. 

DOUBLE RIG, as shown as No. 522. sent out with No. 19 cincha, unless otherwise ordered; $5.00 extra 
added to price of any single rig SADDLE. In addition to the above we make the various combination 
rigs shown on page 40. On all our flower Btamp saddles, you may have your choice of the very best forged 
steel rings, leather covered, or our special non-corrosive metal rings, the toughest metal of Its class yet 
discovered. All of the other saddles are fitted with the steel rings ,but If the non-corrosive rings are wanted, 
add 75 cents per saddle. 

All our cinch rvggings are extra wide, from extra heavy cuts of the very best prime stock in the hide, 
well stretched, all hand-laced into the rings and will wear for years. All single rig saddles are sent out with latigaes on 
sach side. If desired with double billet on uff side, with buckle tongue in cinch, state so in order. No extra charge. 

All double rig saddles sent out with latigoes on near side and double billets on off side, with buckle 
tongues on both ends of cinchas. If desired- differentiate so in order. 

We also furnish the Arizona style flank cinch — a 1%, 1% or 2-in. Btrap laced into the flank ring on offside, with a 
buckle on other end, and a short billet in flank ring on near side. 

8 — TAPS. Saddles will be sent as shown, unless otherwise ordered. If you desire a different pattern or 
length tap. describe what is wanted, and we will furnish any other style you may prefer. (See page 42.) 
— STIRRUP LEATHERS. Made in three styles, price the same. 

WYOMING HALF DOUBLE — single over tree, double through stirrup, with lacing showing front. (See saddle No. 958.) 

Most of our saddles are shown with the regular twist in the stirrup leather, but on some styles we show and we 

strongly recommend the "straight around, no twiBt," wet and moulded to make the stirrup set right. Just say 'no twist, wet 

and set." No hump to chafe the ankle, no friction between the leathers, securing longer service and more real comfort than 

any other style. (See saddles No. 940 and 1076.) 

CAL. HALF DOUBLE — Same as above, but with concealed lacing at top of rosadero. ThiB is adapted only to solid 
■eat saddles. Outward appearance same as the 3-4 double leathers. 

3-4 DOUBLE — Twice around tree and stirrup, sewed and riveted to bottom of rosadero, and concealed lacing at top of 
rosadero. See Baddle No. 158 — -called "full double" by some ridera. 

Stanaard width of stirrup leathers FULL 3 inch, not scant, aa is often the case. If desired wider, add 50 cents per 
% -inch over 3 incheB. Our atirrup leathers and cinch riggings cut from No. 1 prime stock. 



VISALIA STOCK SADDLE COMPANY, SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF. 47 

10 — STIRRUPS The «KkUea are ihown with various tiic* and styles of •trrrupa. and It wfll be Important to specify 
what you want. See page 43. »™«* 

11 — ROSADEROS or FENDERS. Tou may hare tome particular pattern that you like which we will moke If preferred 
lo that shown: otherwise w.ll send aa cut nhown. One piece roaadero and stirrup leathers like No. 1050, extra $3.60 

1- — WEIGHT. Tim© was that a saddle was not considered amounting to much unless it weighed round flftj 
pound*— an erroneous idea, that has been proTen as such by actual experience. The most progressive riders are no 
tonrer willing lo burden their an'.mals with these clumsy and cumbersome rigs, but are demanding lighter weight saddles, 
thirty- five pounds and under. Our rign will average about as follows: 

Regular weight, round cut single rig...:i:i to .'(."► lbs. Light weight, round cut 30 to 33 lbs. 

Regular weight, square cut. sintfle rig. . .35 to 37 lbs. Light weight, squaro cut 32 to 34 lbs. 

according to size of tree and leathers. 

Double rig adds about 2 pounds, heavy swell forks and double rawhide from 1 to 3 pounds, short taps 4 pounXls. 
long taps 5 to 6 pounds, according to length. We find that the hides from smaller and finer bred animals produce leather 
of the finest grain, the toughest fiber, and make the most durable stock, far superior In wearing qualities to the stock 
made from the heavy, coarse grained, rough hides. The eflects of the elrmen'ts, the successive wetting and drying, and 
the action of wind and sun and alkali, are far more destructive to leather than the actual wear, which the finer grade 
stock \9 more able lo withstand. Our long experience and close observation of the old saddles that come to us from time 
to time lor repmlra has proved to us conclusively that ll» medium weight saddles, when mtt from prime stock. 
as ourw are. will actually outwear those made from the heavy "bull hide" stock. For this reason, we recommend the me- 
dium weight saddles. BUT. if you prefer a heavy saddle we are here to make it, and will furnish just what youi 
order calls for. 

13. — THE SEAT. A mot important item to consider, for an easy seat is a source of great comfort to a rider, and 
upon it depends ula ability to perform his work with the least amount of fatigue, while a hard riding saddle la a perpet- 
ual source of discomfort and bad language. 

The ordinary ready made saddle has a seat built like the rest of the rig. in the most economical way, the foundation 
being a met.nl plate w:th insufficient leather above it to properly shape the seat, saving 1 both time and leather, the result 
being the misshapen and uncomfortable seats for which this class of saddles is notorious. 

The ease and comfort of the Walker saddle seat Is proverbial, the result of the solid and painstaking way in which 
they are built, neither time nor leather (both expensive) being spared in that part of the work. This gives ub a seat 
that is properly shaped, comfortable and positively will not sink, and which cannot be obtained by the "economical" 
method mentioned. 

If you wish the metal plate or strainer, we will put it in, if so ordered. In addition to our regular seat, wthoul 
extra charge. 

STYLES OF SEATS. 

% SEAT. Extending just beyond stirrup leathers, leaving a band hold between front edge of seat, and bottom of 
fork. 

FULL SEAT, extending beyond the stirrups leathers up onto the fork, covering opening below fork (made both 
plain and quilted.) Made either solid or looped, as ordered. 

LOOP SEAT. Cut for stirrup leathers to loop through after passing unjder seat jockeys. 

Most of our saddles are shown with the % loop seat, cut for stirrup leathers to loop through after passing under seat 
Jockeys. But as most riders prefer the solid seat, we are making them that way unless ordered aa shown Id cut 

SOLID SEAT, not cut for stirrup leathers, which do not show after passing under the side jockeys. Preferred by 
many as tending to keep water, dust, etc., out of the blankets. 

QUILTED SEATS. Ours are padded soft, made of the very finest, heavy colored pigskin scroll stitched with heavy silk, 
and inlaid, buck sewed at point of wear, and are the most comfortable and durable quilted seats put in any saddles, and 
• decided addition to the appearance of the rig. Either % or "full quilted" seat, $3.50 extra, on saddles shown with plain 
seats. 

% Solid quilted seat shown in saddle 360. % loop spat shown in saddles 1RP-160 

Full solid seat shown in saddle 154. % solid seat shown in saddle 555. 

EXTENSION SEAT. See saddle No. 390. Allows full forward swing to stirrup leathers. No string's or buttons at bap* 
of fork to interfere with the knees. $2.00 extra on any aaddle. Not adapted to elick fork Baddies. 

STATE TOUR PREFERENCE. BUT IN FUTURE IF ORDER DOES NOT SPECIFY WE WILL MAKE ALL SEATS % 
SOLID AS IN SADDLE 555. 

14 — INITIALS OR BRAND. When bo order ed, we stamp either of these in the leather and if you send the Impree< 
eion of your iron, we will reproduce It exactly. WHITE* INITIALS PLAINLY, and state whether to go on back or front 
of cantle or other location. No charge. 

15 — OILING. If so ordered, we oil saddle with absolutely pure nteatsfoot oil, not doped with fish oil or other cheap 
substitute?. No charge. 

BLACKING. When saddles are ordered In black leather, we accomplish this by a method that leaves the leather soft 
and pliable like harness leather, a black that won't wear red in a short time. The usual shop method of treating the 
leather with strong chemicals to make the blacking "take" burns and ruins the stock, which accounts for the prejudice 
against black saddles. Extra charge $2.50. With taps $3.00. 

16* — ROPE STRAP. We furnish all saddles with buckle rope strap on off side of fork, or with split for horn. If preferred 
If a second strap or string 1b desired on the opposite side of the fork, add 75 cents. Quirt snaps put on the left rear seat 
strings, if ordered. No charge. Latlgo holders go with all saddles,

A little time and labor in washing and 
oiling your riding equipment will pay big 
dividends in the greater comfort and longer 
service it will give you. 

The action of sweat, alkali and the ele- 
ments will in time affect the best of leather, 
and cause it to become dry, bony and brittle. 
Stirrup leathers and latigoes are the parts 
most affected, and many a man has had a 
bad spill from a neglected latigo breaking 
unexpectedly. This reminds us that the 
Walker oak-tanned latigoes outwear them 
all.

THE CARE OF A HORSE 



55 



^^xvcvvvvvv XAv ^ 



Dae to our modern life, many people are not 
familiar with the care of animals. These sugges- 
tions are submitted in the hope that they may be 
found interesting, helpful, and stimulating to fur- 
ther study. A person not accustomed to the use of 
the horse may not recognize the symptoms of sick- 
ness until well advanced. An experienced caretaker 
observes his horses carefuly and will detect the 
slightest lameness or abnormality at once. 

FF.KDIX'G — The primary object of feeding Is 
the preservation of health and the maintenance of 
condition in order that the individual may perform 
the work for which it is intended. Foods may be 
grouped as: Flesh-making; fat, heat, energy pro- 
ducing: bone-making; fibrous or bulky materials; 
and water. Naturally, some foods will serve more 
than one purpose, but 
some classification Is 
desirable to better un- 
derstand good feeding 
practice. In general, 
the chief flesh-making 
foods for horses are: 
Oats, corn, barley and 
alfalfa. Those that 
serve for bone-building 
are rich in mineral ele- 
ments, especially cal- 
cium and phosphorous. 
These are particularly 
important for young 
growing animals. The 
bulky, fibrous foods 
have relatively less nu- 
tritional value but are 
necessary for the nor- 
mal functions of the 
digestive tract of herb- 
ivorous animals. Water 
has little nutritive value 
but is necessary for 
body maintenance. 

A good food must con- 
tain constituents in such proportions that nour- 
ishment can be extracted and a sufficient amount 
of bulk provided to maintain body temperature, 
satisfy the appetite, and produce the required work 
without digestive disturbance or loss of weight. 
No one food will accomplish this, therefore the 
amounts should be properly balanced. 

AMOUNT OF FOOD— The amount of food varies 
greatly, being regulated largely by the size of the 
animal, work required, and temperature. It is 
easily understood that other things being equal, a 
small individual will require less food for main- 
tenance than a larger one; the horse at hard work 
will need more energy than one at rest; and in 
severe, cold weather more heat-producing food is 
required than during warm weather. Sudden 



N 




changes In either the kind of food or the amount 
may cause indigestion or colic. Horses accustomed 
to hard work and large amounts of food need at- 
tention when given a rest period. Feed may be re- 
duced about half on such occasions. Many like to 
give a bran masn on Saturday night when the horse 
is to rest Sunday, and give a reduced amount of 
feed the following day. This is done to prevent 
azoturia (Monday morning disease) which usually 
occurs in nightly fed animals accustomed to regu- 
lar work. It often follows a rest period and appears 
when the animal starts to work. The attack is 
sudden, the horse being excited and acting as if 
badly injured in the back or hind legs. There is 
marked pain, rapid breathing and profuse sweating. 
The urine is coffee-colored and frequently retained. 

KIND OF FEED — 
1. Oats. Experience has 
shown that oats are the 
best grain for horse- 
feeding. It supplies con- 
siderable nourishment, 
some bulk, and most 
horses like them. 2. 
Corn. Corn is less de- 
sirable than oats be- 
cause of its tendency 
to produce fat. It is 
useful in very cold cli- 
mates and for fatten- 
ing. It may be mixed 
with oats and legume 
hay to provide a satis- 
factory ration. 3. Bar- 
ley. Barley is a good 
grain for horses and 
may be substituted for 
oats. Because it is so 
hard it is usually soaked 
or crushed before feed- 
ing. 4. Bran. Bran is 
an excellent food for 
horses, especially since it has a mild laxative effect. 
It helps in bone and muscle building and is not 
fattening. The practice of giving a bran mash 
once a week or so at regular intervals is often 
helpful. 5. Salt. Salt is essential, especially in cer- 
tain areas where the water and crops are abnorm- 
ally low in salt content. 6. Legume hay. This is 
an excellent food, however care must be exercised 
to avoid large amounts. It is laxative and pro- 
duces large amounts of urine, and may injure the 
kidneys. If mixed with timothy, grass or grain 
hay it may be used to good advantage. 7. Hay. Hay 
provides most of the bulk of the ration and cannot 
be entirely dispensed with unless straw or a similar 
food is provided. Timothy, oat, and prairie hay are 
best suited for horse-feeding. 8. Grazing. This is 



56 



VISALIA STOCK SADDLE COMPANY, SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF. 



very beneficial because of the laxative value and 
the stimulating effect upon the appetite. Care must 
be taken to avoid overeating when they are first 
turned out or colic may result. Green pasture may 
replace the feeding of bran. 

PRINCIPLES OP FEEDING— The stomach of the 
horse is small, having a capacity of about two to 
four gallons depending upon the size of the horse. 
The large intestine has great capacity and most of 
the food is stored in this part of the digestive tract. 
Water passes directly through the stomach and 
email intestine. If the ear is placed against the 
side of the animal while it is drinking the rushing 
of the water can be heard. This has been the rea- 
son for the practice of watering before feeding, 
since if the stomach contained recently chewed 
food the water passing through would carry a con- 
siderable portion of it directly to the large intes- 
tine before the digestive juices of the stomach 
and small intestine complete their function of 
splitting the food constituents so that they may be 
absorbed. As a result much of this food would pass 
through the animal without supplying the full 
amount of nourishment and perhaps cause colic. 
Water taken an hour after feeding does not carry 
as much food as if given immediately, and if wat- 
ered before feeding the animal will usually drink 
only a small amount following the meal. The horse 
will enjoy the food more if the thirst has been 
quenched before eating a dry meal. Due to the 
small size of the stomach it is best when possible 
to feed often and in small amounts. Thus animals 
at hard labor should be given most of the bulk 
(hay or grass) at night to avoid working with a 
full stomach. Often it is not convenient but it would 
be desirable to feed the grain after the hay to 
allow more complete digestion. The following rules 
may be helpful: 

1. All food should be of good quality. 

2. Water before feeding. 

3. Feeding should be done regularly and in 
regular amounts. 

4. The amount of food depends largely upon 
the size of the 
horse and the 
kind of work it is 
doing. 

GROOMING — 

The objects o f 
groo m i n g are 
cleanliness, pre- 
vention of disease 
and improvement 
in appear a n c e. 
An animal a t 
work and left un- 
groomed will soon 
develop an accu- 
mulation of sweat, 
dirt, and dandruff 
in the hair. If this 
is not removed it may lead to an inflamation of 
skin or forms an excellent condition for mange or 




lice. Grooming has a great effect in improving the 
general condition and appearance of the animal. 
It should be done daily and if possible by a regu- 
lar attendant. The groom usually becomes fond of 
his horses and the horse will like a good care- 
taker. The job is not complete until the fetlocks 
and feet have been cleaned. The removal of dirt 
from the fetlock is necessary for appearance and 
to avoid scratches (inflammation of the skin). The 
accumulation of dirt or gravel around the frog 
may lead to thrush or canker. 

CARE OF THE FEET— The old saying, "the 
horse is as old as his feet" and "no foot — no 
horse" are even more true today than in the past 
because so many horses live under unnatural con- 
ditions such as standing in stables much of the 
time or being worked upon paved streets. The 
wild horse living on the plains, traveling, resting . 
and eating at will, was free from many complica- 
tions that domesticated horses must endure. Mod- 
ern use of horses is such that care of the feet is 
very important. 

Growth of the Hoof — The horny parts of the hoof 
consist of the wall, sole, frog, and bars. These 
parts have no blood or nerve supply and receive 
nourishment from the deeper sensitive structures. 
The wall grows from the top (hair line), the so- 
called coronary band. The wall of the normal 
hoof grows about one-fourth of an inch per month. 
The horny sole grows from the underlying sensitive 
sole. As it gets old it cracks and flakes, peels or 
wears off. The frog is the elastic wedge-shaped 
part between the bars and sole. The bars are ex- 
tensions of the wall from the heel to the frog. The 
purpose of these parts is to protect the sensitive 
structures and absorb shock when the foot strikes 
the ground. 

Trimminpr the Feet — Ordinarily, colts allowed 
sufficient pasture room for normal exercise will 
wear the hoof gradually so that it is only necessary 
to rasp down the sharp edges of the toe in order 
to prevent breaking of the wall. Those confined to 
stables will need more attention. As the horse ma- 
tures, trimming varies depending upon the work 
and the surface which the animal travels upon. 

The tools needed are the rasp, hoof^cutter and! 
hoof-knife, First, raise the foot and with the hoof- 
knife remove the flaky over-growth of sole but un- 
der no circumstances should any of the solid sole 
be taken away. Then with the hoof-cutter remove 
the wall until it is about even with the trimmed 
sole which will usually give a heel and toe of pro- 
per length. With the rasp, smooth the flat surface 
and sharp corners. The outer surface of the hoof 
wall should not be touched with the rasp because if 
the waxy surface is removed, evaporation may take 
place to such an extent that the wall becomes hard, 
■brittle, and less elastic than normal. The bars 
strengthen the heel and should not be reduced 
when trimming the hoof. 

SHOEING — The work done by many horses is 
such that shoeing is necessary. Shoes should be re- 
set every 6 weeks to compensate for normal growth.

HEW MOUTHPIECES IN OLD BITS 

We do an immense amount of this class 
of work and nnd tbai in most cases tlie 
breakage is not from accident or bard use 
but from rusting out. To eliminate this 
source of trouble, we bave secured a new 
rustless steel tbat absolutely will uot rust 
or corrode from any cause whatever, and 
will make a bit almost lndestructable, 
except from accident. 

The cost of these new mouthpieces is 
higher than the ordinary steel, as per the 
following list: Regular Rustless 

Steel Seel 
Half breed moutbpcs, rlveted..$5.00 $6.00 
Half breed mouthpcs. loose.... 6.00 

Spade mouthpieces riveted 5.50 

Spade mouthpieces, loose 6.50 

These prices may vary somewhat if ex- 
tra work is necessary. 



After 
Repaired as good n« 



7.00 
6.75 
7.75 



Any of our new bits will be fitted with 
these rustless mouthpieces as follows: 

Half breed mouthpieces (extra) $1.00 

Spade mouthpieces (extra) 1.25

spurs shown with hook: Plain,

We have unusual facilities for repairing and reclaiming old and apparently useless riding good* 
that would seem to have outlived their usefulness. 

Almost every ranch has an old saddle, the leathers of which are good, but the tree is broken or 
hurts the horse — about as useless an article on a rtnch as you can find. We will make a new tree to 
fit your old leathers, and put the old saddle back to work for you. It will pay you well. The coat 
of this work is not heaw. Write us about it. 

Send in your old stuff and let us surprise you — // we can't repair it, it can't be repaired

COMMENTS OF A VETERINARIAN 



Anthrax occurs in most parts of the world and 
is one of the most dangerous diseases. The germ 
which causes this infection forms spores which may 
live in the soil as long as twenty-five years. If these 
spores are inhaled, eaten with food, or come in con- 
tact with an open wound, they may enter the blood. 
Once they find their way to the blood stream, they 
multiply very rapidly, and in the most susceptible 
animals, produce death within twenty-four hours. 

In man, anthrax is not highly fatal, being most 
dangerous if infection occurs around the face or 
neck. This may occur by wounds to the face or 
neck becoming infected; or due to bites from mos- 
quitoes or flies which have been feeding on an in- 
fected animal or contaminated discharges. The 

most common form in man 

Is a severe carbuncle (boil) 
at the point of infection. 
Inflammation may extend 
over a considerable area 
and after about thirty-six 
hours the center of the 
pustule may become brown. 
Usually there is no fever. 
The swelling may be slight 
or extensive. The cases 
with marked swelling, es- 
pecially of the face, are 
more likely to be fatal. In- 
halation infections occur 
more commonly among 
those sorting and cleaning 
hair and wool, and is 
known as "Wool-Sorter's 
Disease." The attack is 
sudden with chills and fever. Breathing is rapid and 
often painful. Death usually occurs between the 
third and fifth days. 

The following history illustrates the danger con- 
nected with handling dead animals. A Veterinarian 




had completed a post-mortem examination of a 
dead cow. Rubber gloves were worn and great care 
was taken not to get blood or discharges on him- 
self. He had completed the examination and while 
washing was bitten on the hand by a mosquito. A 
carbuncle developed but he was fortunate enough 
to have serum administered promptly and it was 
not fatal. 

Another interesting case occurred in a bull re- 
cently shipped a considerable distance. As usual, he 
fought, scratching and bruising himself in several 
places. Upon arrival at the destination he was 
placed in a pen and being restless he pawed a great 
deal, throwing the dirt over his back. A few days 
later he died of anthrax. No doubt the spores were 
dug up with the dirt and 
entered the body through 
some of the scratch wounds 
on his back. It was known 
that many cattle on this 
farm had died from an- 
thrax. (The heaviest losses 
occurred fifteen years pre- 
vious.) The carcasses were 
buried in shallow pits but 
the anthrax spores lived 
on and caused the death of 
this fine animal. This 
serves to emphasize the 
importance of carefully 
burning all car c a s s e s 
where anthrax is sus- 
pected. 

Fortunately very satis- 
factory vaccines are avail- 
able, although the reliable products are reasonably 
expensive. The spore vaccines are dangerous. 
They should be used only by properly trained 
veterinarians, and only then with the greatest of 
care. 



1. A serum protects the individual for a short time only. 

2. A true vaccine or virus produces the disease, although the attack may be very mild. 

3. A combination of serum and virus properly administered gives good protection in some diseases. 

4. Bacterins and aggressins do not cause the disease, but stimulate the protective forces of the body 
against a certain infection. Some of these products are very effective in preventing certain diseases, 
but for others they have little or no value. 

5. Vaccination may be harmful if the individual is sick or in a weakened condition. In severe out- 
breaks, an especially powerful vaccine may be necessary to control the infection. Losses may continue 
for about two weeks following vaccination since about this much time is required for the animal body 
to respond to vaccination. 

It is good policy to avoid transportation, fatigue, exposure, overfeeding, or sudden change in food for at 
least a week following vaccination. It is also good management to have the animals in thrifty condition 
before vaccination. 

Some vaccines are dangerous in that they may cause the disease in man or animals. The bottles should 
be burned or carefully sterilized. Should any be spilled, disinfect the area immediately. 

8. The services of a qualified veterinarian is good insurance.

Limit of insurance or C.O.D. is 
$200.00 on a single shipment. 
When value exceeds this amount 
we divide into two shipments if 
possible to keep within the limit. 
Note the low rate at which saddles 
can be sent to any post office, thus 
reaching hundreds of points that for- 
merly required long: stage or team 
hauls from express offices.

SPECIAL 
REQUEST 

Every few days one of our 
customers sends in an order 
accompanied by a cut torn out 
of our catalog. 

This cut and those on the 
reverse side are absolutely lost 
so far as any future use or 
reference is concerned, and 
later on, when someone is 
looking in the catalog for in- 
formation regarding these ar- 
ticles, the catalog is useless as 
far as these articles are con- 
cerned. 

It is absolutely unnecessary 
to send us these torn out cuts, 
the numbers of the articles 
being all that is necessary, and 
there is no possibility of mis- 
take if the numbers are sent 
correcdy. 

For your own benefit as well 
as ours, we ask you kindly: 
DO NOT CUT OUT THE 
ENGRAVINGS FROM THE 
CATALOG. SEND THE 
NUMBER ONLY OF THE 
ARTICLE WANTED.
